It's cold out there. The Coldest Night of the Year is a family-friendly walk that raises money for charities serving hungry, homeless, and hurting people in our community. Walk with us on February 22, 2020!
The Mustard Seed Edmonton was first planted in 1988 in the old Central Baptist Church on 96th Street where it blossomed into a haven for low-income individuals and families. Today, hundreds of people rely on the organization for food, clothing, counseling and other support services such as housing assistance, employment coaching and spiritual development.
We recognize that the root causes of poverty and homelessness are complex and diverse, so we continue to grow and evolve with the needs of those we serve.
Funds raised at Coldest Night of the Year 2019, will support The Neighbour Centre in the Old Strathcona/Ritchie neighbourhood. Since it's new renovation, TNC has offered greater services including a full kitchen, laundry, showers, nursing office and more to those experiencing poverty in south Edmonton. The Neighbour Centre is the only adult drop-in south of the river.
We're working on finalizing our Start location - check back soon!
Between 6:00 and 8:00 pm a warm, light meal will be served to all walkers and volunteers.
